Open-source Python projects categorized as KVM | Edit details

KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). It was merged into the mainline Linux kernel in version 2.6.20, which was released on February 5, 2007.

Top 8 Python KVM Projects

  • GitHub repo OSX-KVM

    Run macOS on QEMU/KVM. With OpenCore + Big Sur + Monterey support now! Only commercial (paid) support is available now to avoid spammy issues. No Mac system is required.

  • GitHub repo tinypilot

    Use your Raspberry Pi as a browser-based KVM.

    Project mention: Best KVM for Home Lab? | | 2022-01-14

    I purchased six of the Tiny Pilot devices suggested by u/megafunk93. These will operate as IP KVM for my host servers and WFH systems.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo Ganeti

    Ganeti is a virtual machine cluster management tool built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen or KVM and other open source software.

    Project mention: Virtual machine severs | | 2021-05-10

    For clusters of VMs, there's things like Ganeti

  • GitHub repo kvmd

    The main Pi-KVM daemon

    Project mention: Has anyone found an iOS app that works with piKVM? | | 2022-01-05
  • GitHub repo ovs-toolbox

    Graphical User Interface for Open vSwitch administration

    Project mention: vswitch GUI in Proxmox? | | 2021-10-29

    Wouldn't something like this work?

  • GitHub repo virtnbdbackup

    Backup utiliy for Libvirt kvm / qemu with Incremental backup support.

    Project mention: Changed-block tracking and differential backups in QEMU | | 2021-04-03

    I have a project going on which aims to create a small backup utility for using the latest features added to libvirt/qemu:

  • GitHub repo md_server

    Standalone EC2 metadata server to simplify the user of vendor cloud images with standalone kvm/libvirt

    Project mention: Linux Hypervisor Setup (libvirt/QEMU/KVM) | | 2021-05-01

    I was playing around with this a while ago, using cloud-init and virt-install. But I found it to be quite cumbersome if you don't have some kind of metadata service that can provide cloud-init with the user-data, ie. not using the nocloud provider.

    I started looking at this mock EC2 metadata service, but never did anything with it:

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo linux-russian-roulette

    Like Russian roulette, but for your kernel.

    Project mention: SyzScope is a research project that aims to reveal high-risk security bugs found by Syzbot | | 2021-11-11

    It's time to plug my research lol
